ColorSnap® Visualizer iPhone App Reviews

  • Great!

    By Ashjann
    I really like this app! People are too critical.. It gives you a great visual idea of what your room would look like with different colors.
  • No stains

    By jsbull
    It doesn't have stains.
  • No

    By rachel_h22
    Very splotchy and does not work on my walls that have stripes
  • Waste of time

    By mgrable18
    The app is difficult to maneuver, almost impossible to sample the actual color that you want to try an forces you to use a pre loaded picture! Horrible!
  • Don’t bother

    By Hwilkie
    This app is horrible. Don’t waste your time.
  • Lear How to Use

    By scottysteph
    This app is great. I was worried it wouldn’t work based on negative reviews. You have to learn how to use it. If you click on paint a scene, you have to choose a color either new or from your saved SW paint perks colors, then it will access your camera. It does at first, take you to a pre loaded scene, but go back to the camera live using the arrow at the top, then touch the screen and it will load it to your own live picture. It just takes a little exploring, but it does work. It may not be flawless but it’s the best I have used to get a color on your own actual wall to see what it will look like. I’m not sure the color it paints is very accurate. I wouldn’t choose a color based on this first. I would choose a color you really like, then put it in this app to get a “general” idea what it will look like. All electronic devices are going to vary in their pixels and look different. The chip is still going to be the most accurate.
  • Needs one more tweak.

    By ElizaDuckie
    It has its uses, and its limitations! I appreciate this app’s good features. Be aware, however, that after you take a photo of your “well lit room” and you click on a color, to “see it on your walls” it will apply it to their stock photo. If the app could apply it to MY virtual walls, this would be far more interesting, helpful and fun. In my case the light neutral colors of woodwork and furniture of the stock photo are very similar to mine. So it’s not such a stretch to envision the wall colors in my setting. I can imagine that if your trim, ceiling and furniture are in a very different color palette it will be difficult to picture. They do indicate, in the very tiny print, that one should, as always, try a swatch of paint on your walls to be sure if it’s going to work. I’m also not sure of how accurate the colors are that the app tries to ‘match’, in order to suggest colors. To be fair I do know my camera photos are not a completely accurate match to what my eyes see, due to any camera’s limitations. Phone cam’s just aren’t as good (yet) as a human eye at discerning subtleties. So, given that, it does a pretty good job of suggesting colors, and you can see more suggestions as you click on each color. Would I use this to pick my colors and then buy the paint to match? Certainly not without getting a color swatch and paint sample, at the store, then painting it in the wall and viewing in all my lighting conditions to be sure. I would, however, use it to get some ideas before going to the store. Standing in front of all those samples, without any ideas, can be very overwhelming. .
  • Not what it promised

    By Trescrwn
    Colors are not accurate. I guess it matches to the closest Sherman Williams paint rather than a custom paint color. The matched paint colors were awful.
  • How can this be so bad?

    By Pappawharris
    It’s amazing this app has a national paint name associated with it. Waste of time even trying to get it to work. I can’t even imagine how much they paid to develop an app that doesn’t work. We will be buying a different brand paint.
  • Mediocre

    By Lovingit1969
    Thought this app would solve my waffling on colors problem. It’s very hit and miss. Not enough parameters to color the wall or side of the house. Paints the entire pic, and erasing where you DON’T want paint takes alllll the color away. Great concept but needs some serious tweaking.
